Medieval and Early Modern Greek Manuscripts : Catena on Proverbs

Medieval and Early Modern Greek Manuscripts

<p style='text-align: justify;'> The manuscript formed originally a single codex with Cambridge, Trinity College, O.1.54 (see in particular Rosenbaum 2004, p. 102* note 290, and Bady-Tchernetska 2003, pp. 63-65). Produced in the 11th century, the manuscript contains a <i> Catena on Proverbs</i>, whose ending is found now on f. 1 of MS Trinity O.1.54. This manuscript contains moreover a <i> Catena on the Song of Songs</i> by the same hand.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'> The <i> Catena on Proverbs</i> lacks the beginning. The extant signatures of the quires attest that some 5 quires are missing at the beginning of the manuscript. Maybe in order to fill in some way this lacuna, a quaternion was added later to the original manuscript (here labeled as Part I, ff. 1-8). However, there is no continuity between the added quire and the rest of the manuscript; ff. 1-8 contain some of the scholia to the Proverbs by Evagrius Ponticus (until Pr. 3,11), whereas the commentary on f. 9 starts with Pr. 10,4. </p><p style='text-align: justify;'> The first quire, moreover, is a palimpsest: the undertext, which is datable in the 9th century, contains parts of John Chrysostom's <i> Sermons against the Jews</i>. </p><p style='text-align: justify;'> Dr Erika Elia</p>
